trump presidency: State of the Union Fact-Check

SubscribeLog In SubscribeLog InAdvertisementPoliticstrump presidencyState of the Union Fact-CheckImagePresident Trump at The State of the Union on Tuesday night.CreditGabriella Demczuk for The New York TimesBy Linda Qiu Jan. 30, 2018Reporters from The New York Times checked the facts, falsehoods and statements in need of context from President Trump’s first State of the Union address. Watch a replay along with real time analysis here and an annotated transcript of the speech.economy“Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including 200,000 new jobs in manufacturing alone.”The math is correct, but context matters.The economy has added about 169,000 jobs a month since the 2016 election, but that is somewhat slower than the 185,000 jobs per month that the economy added over the previous seven years.—Binyamin Appelbaumeconomy“African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded.”True, but needs context.It’s true that the black unemployment was the lowest recorded, 6.8 percent in December. But also the culmination of a longer-term trend.

We repealed the core of disastrous Obamacare — the individual mandate is now gone.’’True, but needs context.In the newly-passed tax law, Congress eliminated penalties for people who go without health insurance, starting in 2019. An estimated 4.5 percent of taxpayers paid the penalty in 2015, and nearly 60 percent of those who did earned less than $50,000 in 2015 — though the Kaiser Family Foundation found that a sizable amount of low-income Americans paying the penalty could find coverage for less.People could, in many cases, obtain exemptions from the penalties that were indeed a major element of the Affordable Care Act. Other elements of the health care law remain intact.—Robert Peareconomy”Apple has just announced its plans to invest a total of $350 billion in America, and hire another 20,000 workers.”This needs context […]
